Directions:

Crystal Springs campground is located in the Grant Grove area 4 miles (6km) from Kings Canyon Park entrance. Elevation 6500 feet (1980m) in open evergreen stands, 1/4 mile (.4km) from the Grant Grove of sequoias.

Arriving from the south:
From highways 65 or 99, go east on Highway 198E. Follow signs to Sequoia National Park to the park entrance. Vehicles over 22 feet in total length must approach the parks from Highway 180E rather than Highway 198E, due to steep curving roads. Highway 180E may be reached from Highway 198E using Highway 63N from Visalia.

From Fresno, take Highway 180E, following signs to Kings Canyon National Park. Once in the park, follow signs to Sequoia National Park and Lodgepole. It takes about 1 1/4 hours to drive to the campground from the south (198E) park entrance or 45 minutes from the north (180E) park entrance. The main park road, the Generals Highway, connects the north and south entrances. Winter storms may cause temporary closures from Grant Grove to Lodgepole.
